Thank You For Flirting with Disaster

In the 1920’s  Alice Reighly started the Anti-flirt Club to protect vulnerable women who could not control the wiley ways of their feminine beauty.

It was kind of like a therapy group for victims of their own seductive charms.

Here’s the rules, which were intended as sound and serious advice:

1. Don’t flirt: those who flirt in haste oft repent in leisure.

2. Don’t accept rides from flirting motorists—they don’t invite you in to save you a walk.

3. Don’t use your eyes for ogling—they were made for worthier purposes.

4. Don’t go out with men you don’t know—they may be married, and you may be in for a hair-pulling match.

5. Don’t wink—a flutter of one eye may cause a tear in the other.

6. Don’t smile at flirtatious strangers—save them for people you know.

7. Don’t annex all the men you can get—by flirting with many, you may lose out on the one.

8. Don’t fall for the slick, dandified cake eater—the unpolished gold of a real man is worth more than the gloss of a lounge lizard.

9. Don’t let elderly men with an eye to a flirtation pat you on the shoulder and take a fatherly interest in you. Those are usually the kind who want to forget they are fathers.

10. Don’t ignore the man you are sure of while you flirt with another. When you return to the first one you may find him gone.

Now, here’s a picture of Alice to show you why this Anti- Flirt Club was so essential to curbing flirtatious behavior….
